New Grocery Stores in North Seattle

I love grocery shopping where I can find the latest in gourmet and imported foods.  Now grocery shopping is becoming more pleasurable in North Seattle, near Northgate!

A new Safeway is in the works for Pinehurst with completion by November of this year (2010).   Located onNorth Seattle Safeway 15th NE and NE 125th, the store will be the first "green" Safeway in our state.  Safeway has wanted to update their store for some time and worked with a neighborhood community group who urged Safeway to agree to LEED Silver Certification for their new 50,000 square foot store.  They will have an eco-friendly parking lot containing less concrete and will also have energy-saving refrigeration.

Other neighborhood requests being incorporated are an indoor / outdoor coffee shop with a fireplace (!), landscaping and bike racks.

Residents hope this new development will inspire restaurants and other walkable amenities to their North Seattle neighborhood.

Demolition occurred in early May and a drive through pharmacy has been constructed in the meantime.

North Seattle Grocery StoresAlso new to the neighborhood is a newly remodeled QFC in Olympic Hills on 15th NE and NE 145th streets.  Residents aren't happy about the higher cost of most grocery items but QFC does have high quality meat and produce, plus a lot more imported foods, wines and deli and bakery items. 

I welcome the change!
